    The chartered Zarathustra Company had it all their way. Their charter was for a Class III uninhabited planet, which Zarathustra was, and it meant they owned the planet lock stock and barrel. They exploited it, developed it and reaped the huge profits from it without interference from the Colonial Government. Then Jack Holloway, a sunstone prospector, appeared on the scene with his family of Fuzzies and the passionate conviction that they were not cute animals but little people.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    One of my all time favorite Golden Age novels that I've recommended to friends many times.


    What didn’t you like about Peter Ganim’s performance?

    Mechanical and droning. He does his best with the accents, but this was a very difficult listen because at least 70% of the book sounded like it was read by a robot.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a fantastic book that is one of my all time favorites. Unfortunately, Mr. Ganim's performance is at best poor. He does his best with a limited range of accents, but his style of mechanically reading in a monotone, droning voice is incredibly distracting and really detracts from a wonderful story that is filled with all sorts of emotional moments.
